Another year, another visit to Lake Toba.. A friend recommended I stay at Samosir Cottages and his advice didn't disappoint: had a fantastic time and met some great people! My room was clean, spacious and had hot water. Beautiful view of the lake also. The wifi here is arguably the fastest on Lake Toba which is a bonus (although only... More

I was very fortunate to have a friend that has spent some time in Lake Toba and told me to check it out, so I took couple weeks off and went to see what this Lake Toba was all about, and OH-MY-GOD! That was everything I needed it and I will be forever thankful to my friend Dave to share... More

Ripped off compared to far cheaper options nearby. Don't get ripped off by Mr Bloom who can resort to death threats and press his fist on your rib cage to get his way. Lake Toba is a beautiful place but it is aggressive and rip off merchants which give the place a bad reputation and bitter after taste.

This was a great hotel right on the water. They have their own little diving board and a good area to go swimming in lake toba. Every wednesday and saturday they have live music and it's a great area to hang out, play pool, grab a drink or sit and talk to the local staff. Super friendly and the rooms... More

Staying there for a few weeks it was a great experience. Many of the different shops and restaurants were walking distance. The service was nice, friendly, and very helpful. I would recommend samosir cottage to anyone who travels to the beautiful lake toba.

Very nice set up facing the lake. The gardens are well maintained too. It has a cosy feeling and very idylic. The room is basic though, without tv or fridge. We paid rp200, 000 and it comes with breakfast. They could do better with the rooms as the ensuite bath has not been scrub clean. It was unfortunate that during... More

No toiletries and drinking water was given therefore you will need to bring/buy... More

We had a very nice stay. Our room had seaview which made it in the mornings very loud, because the Jet Ski's and boats are going nearby the riverside. But it was nice and clean when we came. It was not cleaned during our 6 night stay and only the first toiletpaper roll was free. We paid 150000 rupiah per... More
